Have Your Say
It was only a matter of time after the Scottish Government introduced wide-ranging changes to rental contracts last year before something similar happened across the UK. Take a look at the consultation and have your say before the deadline of 26th August 2018.
Government Consultation description
The government is committed to increasing security for tenants in the private rented sector while balancing landlords’ needs to regain their properties when their circumstances change.
This consultation invites view and comments on the benefits and barriers of landlords offering longer tenancies. We are also seeking views on our proposed model for a 3 year tenancy with a 6 month break clause, and the options for implementing this. The model is designed to give tenants certainty over rents, and retains the flexibility that many desire.
